US Wedding Reception

Back in October, Daniel and I were married in London. Due to immigration stuff, we didn’t have our US wedding reception here in Minnesota until this past Sunday. It turned out to be a beautiful day. The weather was perfect, everyone seemed to have a good time, I saw so many people from my past and I got to wear my awesome wedding dress again!

My best friend Tiffany, who has her own photography business, Timeless Expressions, took our photos. Her professional photos will be ready in a few weeks, but for now a few snapshots of the day.

With our Norwegian wedding cake, called kransekake. We did the Norwegian tradition of cutting it, breaking it into tiny pieces, giving each person a piece and then doing a toast for good luck before eating.

Besides our wedding reception, the rest of our week in Minnesota has been great as well. A summary of events:

Going to the Coffee Hag and antique shops ♥ Taking Daniel to the Lower Sioux Pow Wow out on the reservation where there were 500 Native American dancers in traditional dress ♥ Spending time with my relatives from all over the US, especially Dallas and Seattle ♥ Running in the pouring down rain into Target with Tiffany ♥ TARGET ♥ Finding a pile of old movie posters at an antique shop and buying one for $2 ♥ Drinking duck farts (Baileys, Kahlúa & whiskey together) ♥ Finding old photos (Terra, Becky, Heather – I have some really funny/embarrassing ones of us) ♥ taking silly photos with Tiffany at German Park ♥ 7-year old Brooklyn calling my name “Christinnaaa!” when seeing me downtown ♥ Skyping with my cousin/godchild Sidoni, finding out she did her book report on Bob The Street Cat! ♥ Tiffany’s cat Sassy cuddling with Daniel and I ♥ My Aunt Dotty’s almond cake (not the same as the kransekake, but just as good!) ♥ Having lunch with my godchild Lily where she got a free birthday ice cream sundae!

Lastly, here’s me having an iced latte at a used bookshop in my hometown.
